Turkey and France Lock Horns over Armenia Resolution











France which fake stabs freedom of speech by criminalizing any person who denies or disputes the so called "The Armenian Massacre" one hundred years ago or less.
In the mean time the Turkish Parliament should criminalize any one who disputes the "Algerian Genocide by the French".
Turkey Freezes Ties With France over Genocide-Denial Bill Turkey froze political and military relations with France in retaliation for the approval by the French parliament’s lower chamber of a measure that makes it a crime to deny genocide against Armenians a century ago.
The government recalled its ambassador from Paris for consultations, canceled a joint meeting of economy and trade ministers in January, and halted all programs for training and cultural affairs, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said yesterday in televised remarks in Ankara following the vote.
Turkey has been warning France for the past week that its fast-growing economy means it can hurt companies such as Airbus SAS and Electricite de France SA if the measure goes through. It was presented by a member from the party of President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is seeking re-election in April and trailing his socialist opponent in the polls.
French carmaker Renault SA employs 6,800 people in Turkey and is pressing on with production because the “French decision is a political development,” Ibrahim Aybar, chief executive officer of Renault Mais, Renault’s Turkey sales unit, said today in an interview with CNBC-e television.
French carmakers including Renault control a fifth of Turkey’s auto market and French banks including BNP Paribas SA have assets in the country exceeding $20 billion. French direct investment in Turkey between 2002 and 2010 was $4.8 billion, the Turkish Embassy in Paris said.

Turkey and France in diplomatic row over Armenian genocide bill

Kim Jong Un







North Korea proclaimed the beginning of the Kim Jong Un era on Thursday 22 December 2011, describing him as the "successor" of the nation's revolutionary undertakings "and leader of its people." Kim Jong Un, the youngest of Kim Jong-il's three sons, holds the military rank of a four-star general, despite having little military experience and being in his late 20s. In a dispatch late Saturday 23 December 2011, the official Korean Central News Agency called General Kim the "supreme leader of the revolutionary armed forces." Earlier Saturday, KCNA hailed Mr. Kim as "supreme commander" - the first use of that title, also used by his late father. And on Monday 22 December 2011, the Communist Party's Rodong Sinmun referred to Kim Jong Un as leader of the ruling Workers' Party Central Committee, a post that gave Kim Jong Un power over one of the country's highest decision-making bodies.
Kim Jong Un, the youngest son of Kim Jong Il, was promoted to the Workers' Party Central Committee and the Party's Central Military Commission at a party convention in September 2010, and to the rank of four-star general of the Korean People's Army the day before, putting him in line to succeed his father. The election of Kim Jong-un as one of the two Vice-Chairmen of the NDC of the State and the CMC of the party clearly placed him in a position to succeed his father as the ruler of North Korea.
On 25 June 2010 the official Korean Central News Agency reported that the Korean Workers' Party would convene a meeting in early September 2010 to elect its "highest leading body". This was generally viewed as a step toward holding a Party Congress [which had not been convened since 1980], which could herald a transfer of power designating leader Kim Jong Il's third son, Kim Jong Un, as his successor.

Ultra Catholic Madame Nhu, Dragon Lady of South Vietnam and Burning Buddhist Monks Delight



Diem and the Nhus were Catholic. Most Vietnamese were Buddhists. No political opposition parties were allowed in South Vietnam. As opposition to the government increased, more Vietnamese became attracted to Buddhism. Ngo Dinh Thuc, brother of President Diem, was the Catholic Archbishop of Hue, the center of Buddhism in Vietnam. In early 1963 there was a celebration in Hue to commemorate Thuc’s twenty-five years as bishop. Both Vietnamese and Roman Catholic flags were flown, which violated a law which permitted only the Vietnamese flag be flown in public. This event was followed by Buddha’s 2,587th birthday, and the Buddhists in Hue wanted to fly their flag. When the Diem government prohibited this, thousands of Buddhists demonstrated in protest. Nine were killed when government troops fired into the demonstrators. U. S. Ambassador William Trueheart urged Diem to make peace with the Buddhists by admitting fault, paying indemnity, and issuing a public apology for the incident. Instead the government blamed the Buddhists’ death on the Viet Cong. When the Buddhists continued to demonstrate, the government banned demonstrations. The Buddhist crisis had begun, and escalated.

When the government response to their grievances proved unsatisfactory, Buddhist monks and nuns began a series of hunger strikes. Rioting in Hue turned violent and government troops fought back. Anti-government demonstrations by the Buddhists spread throughout the country. In Saigon, on June 11 1963, an old Buddhist monk squatted on the street near the Xa Loi pagoda. Gasoline was poured over his head. The monk lit a match and set himself aflame. Thich Quang Duc was the first of seven Buddhists to protest the Diem regime with suicide by immolation.

The US was stunned by the Buddhist suicides, and urged Diem to make some sort of settlement. Showing she was made of sterner stuff, Madame Nhu called for beating the monks “ten times over” and referred to the suicides as a “monk barbecue show.” Not to be outdone, Nhu commented “If the Buddhists wish to have another barbecue I will be glad to supply the gasoline and a match.” Pressured by the Americans, Diem finally met with Buddhist leaders. A communiqué was issued and signed by Diem. When Madame Nhu learned of this she accused Diem of cowardice and called him a jellyfish for even negotiating.

Positions hardened. The Buddhist protests, originally religious, became overtly political. Their support increased. Nhu claimed the Buddhists were rebels and their movement was communist infiltrated. Diem and the Nhus wanted to crush the Buddhists but were restrained by the Americans, who professed a belief in religious freedom and urged the government to reform. The crisis extended into the fall, and worsened. The Nhus complained Diem was too soft on the Buddhists. There were rumors both the military and Nhu were planning anti-Diem coups.

Nhu considered the Vietnamese Special Forces his private army. On August 21 1963, he ordered hundreds of them to attack the Xa Loi pagoda with guns, tear gas, and grenades. The Buddhists barricaded themselves inside. After two hours of fighting over 100 monks were arrested and taken away. Madame Nhu grated an interview the day after the pagoda raid. She “was in a state of euphoria, chattering like a schoolgirl after a prom.” She told the reporter the government had crushed “the Communist-Buddhists” and referred to the event as “the happiest day of my life since we crushed the Binh Xugen in 1955.”
After long deliberation, our Buddhist Student Union in Saigon joined with the leadership of the National Buddhist Congregation in its struggle for religious liberty, endorsing their open letter and petition to the government:

The presidential decree banning the Buddhist flag must be rescinded.
Everyone must be granted the same freedoms as those guaranteed the Catholics under the French regime, including freedom to assemble. The National Buddhist Congregation must enjoy the same status as the Catholic Church and not be considered merely an association.
The arrests of Buddhists must stop.
Buddhists must be given the freedom to practice the Buddha's teachings.
The families of those who were crushed by the tanks must be compensated, and those who did the killing must be arrested and brought to trial.
The High Patriarch of the National Buddhist Congregation, Thay Tinh Khiet, signed the petition and added these five principles:

Buddhists have never aimed at overthrowing any regime. We only wish to change policies that discriminate against us.
Buddhists have no enemies. Our struggle is not against the Catholics but against discrimination. Buddhists never wish to fight another religion.
The Buddhist struggle for a fair religious policy is part of the struggle for social justice in all of Vietnam.
Buddhists vow to follow a nonviolent path, practicing the teachings of the Awakened One during the struggle itself. Because of our commitment to nonviolence, we Buddhists are ready to sacrifice ourselves in the spirit of understanding and love. We want more than just a change of policy. We want the spirit of love and understanding to inspire and transform the hearts and minds of all people, including those in government.
Buddhists will not let any political force make use of our struggle.
In the early morning hours of August 20, 1963, the army's special forces raided the most important strongholds of the Buddhist movement throughout the country and arrested more than 2,000 monks and nuns in their temples along with active Buddhist laypeople in their homes, including many of my friends. The police in Saigon ransacked Xa Loi Temple, An Quang Pagoda, and several other temples. One monk at Xa Loi, whom they thought was Thay Giac Duc, one of the most eloquent speakers for the Buddhist demonstrations, was beaten to death right on the spot.

The Struggle Between the Amazigh Flag and the Red Moroccan Flag




Flag symbolism and origin


The most comprehensive interpretation of the flag is to be found on bladi.net, 19 August 2006. The text seems to have been copied from another, uncredited source.
The flag is said to have been designed by the Berber Academy (Agraw Imazighen).
Blue (amidad) represents the Mediterranean Sea, whose shores have been inhabited by the Imazighen for millenaries.
Green (azegzaw) represents the green land, which has been cultivated by the Imazighen since the Prehistoric times.
Yellow (awragh) represents the Sahara, as the Tuaregs' domain, but also joy and gold.
Accordingly, the three colours represent North Africa, from its Mediterranean shore in the north to the Sahara desert in the south, and the attachement of the Imazighen to their land.
The Imazighen red emblem represents both the eternal life and the blood shed by the martyres. As the symbol of the free men defending their culture, it watches and enlightens Tamazgha, the Imazighens' country (the whole of North Africa and the Saharian immensity).
The flag represents the harmony of the human beings with their land.
The anthropomorphic emblem has been known since the Prehistoric times. Its modern meaning, as the symbol of the Imazighen people, is to be credited to Muhend Aarav Bessaoud, founder of the Berber Academy in 1966. The emblem can be worn on a medal, on a ring or on a bell clasp to express support to the Imazighen cause.

The Berber flag was the subject of a thread started on 9 May 2002 on kabyle.com, no longer online.
Here again, fhe flag is said to have been designed by the Berber Academy under the guidance of Muhend Aarav Bessaoud. The creation date is given as "early 1978". A contributor ot the thread says that Bessaoud has modernized the meaning of the colours, which were originally parts of the Kabyle jewelry, the three stripes as enamels and red as coral cabochons. The original meaning of the colours is said to be the following.
Blue represents water from the sky and yellow the sun heath; the combination of these two natural phenomena allows agricultural production.
Red represents the night star, that is the moon and, in the Berber symbolics, the woman. Indeed the woman is cooking (and cooking requires magic) on the family holy fire.
Another contributor claims that the flag has been used since millenaries and the times of the great Berber chiefs. He further adds that the flag was used during the negociations that led to the Évian agreement (18 March 1962) and the end of the independence war in Algeria. Krim Belkacem, responsible of the Kabylian zone during the war and leader of the FLN delegation at Évian, was welcomed with two flags, the French flag and the Berber flag. The contributor says he is 24 years old, therefore he could not have been an eyewitness at Évian. I have not found any other record of a Berber flag used at Évian.

According to an interview of Ould Slimane Salem, the Berber Academy was created in 1966 by young Berbers, most of them being Kabyles, to restore the use of the Tifinagh language and propose a standardized alphabet. Renamed Berber Assembly (Agraw Imazighen) in 1967, the movement was suppressed in 1978 by the French authorities upon pressure by President of Algeria Houari Boumediene. It seems thatBessaoud was involved in violent acts and, maybe, racket against supporters of the FLN in Paris, which was a convenient pretext to get rid of him and of the Berber Academy.
Muhend Aarav Bessaoud (1924-2002), appointed officer in Kabylia during the war of independence, struggled against the new rulers after the independence, from 1963 to 1965, and exiled to France in 1966, where he created the Berber Academy. After the suppression of the Academy, Bessaoud was expelled to England and was prevented to return to Kabylia until 1997. Bessaoud is considered as the spiritual father of Berberism.

Stanley McChrystal After 10 Years, U.S. War in Afghanistan "Halfway Done"



After 10 Years, U.S. War in Afghanistan "Halfway Done

McChrystal commanded coalition forces in the country from 2009-10. President Obama fired him after he and his aides sounded off about the commander in chief and other top U.S. officials in a now-famous Rolling Stone magazine article.

His comments on the occasion of the war’s 10th anniversary were corroborated by aid groups, who told the BBC that improvements in Afghanistan have been spotty at best. Drought, limited access to health care and schools, insecurity and corruption are some of the problems that will continue to afflict the country for the foreseeable future.

The BBC notes that U.N. figures show more than 11,000 civilians have died in Afghanistan in the past five years alone. More than 2,500 coalition troops have also been killed, most of them American.

Muslims in Bosnia ethnic Cleansed from ancestors land


All the south east corner where the Bosniacs were a majority they were all exiled from it never to return and their lands were awarded to the Serbian orthodox conquerers.

Ratko Mladic the Serbian butcher and George W H Bush Silence

A Murderous Frenzy

Croats, Kosovars and Bosnian Muslims in particular see him very differently -- as the devil incarnate. Most people in the West, too, see Mladic as the man responsible for the worst massacre of civilians in Europe since World War II. The man who laid siege to Sarajevo, where over 10,000 people died in more than three and a half years of constant fire. The Butcher of Srebrenica, whose henchmen killed over 8,000 men and boys aged between 11 and 77 in a murderous frenzy.

The accomplice of these murders is George W H Bush who called the attrocity killing a "Hick-up" and "Europe's problem".

Crime in Iraq Video

Raed Jarrar, Iraqi-American blogger and political analyst joins Thom Hartmann.

So much for shock and awe - a new Wikileaks release details shock and horror in Iraq. One of the latest leaked state department cables - alleges that back during Bush’s presidency in 2006 - U.S. troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians - including 5 children - and 4 women - and then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence.

At the time - Bush’s military officials denied the incident. But as this Wikileaks release shows - a U.N. special investigator uncovered evidence to the contrary, noting that morgue reports showed that all victims were handcuffed and shot in the head execution style.

Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at United Nations Representing his Case September-2011


At the UN on Friday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas appealed for recognition of an independent Palestinian state in a statesmanlike speech.



I am the one who is accused.


Hanging heavy in the air was the threat of renewed violence over frustrated Palestinian aspirations, in spite of Abbas' vow — perceived by Israeli security officials as genuine — to prevent Palestinian violence. The death on Friday of 35-year-old Issam Badram, in gunfire that erupted after rampaging Jewish settlers destroyed trees in a Palestinian grove, was the type of incident that both Palestinians and Israelis had feared would spark widespread violence.
